I wanted to bang my head against the wall for missing this one.  No, I'm not a genius.

I felt stupid about this one, too.  I'm sure I would have gotten it (cuz I'm so smart, hehheh) but I accidentally looked at the answer before I meant to.

:doh:  :laugh: LMAO!  I took the bait yesterday, actually spotted 5 F{s} before saying 'what the fuck' & looking at the answer, but I still didn't see F #6 right away! The word 'of' apparently can only be recognized so many times. :doh:
  My cheap-ass theory is that the phonics thing throws us off, too, 'of' is pronounced like 'ov', so the F is being voiced as a V. :shake:  :doh:  :clap2:

I found them all without cheating. No, I am not a smart person, but I guess not all brains are incapable of processing....

I even tried the 'count the letters that look like an F' without reading it, and I missed them.  That blew me away.  I had a feeling I missed something before I saw that there were 6, and I had to re-do it three more times before those damn things registered.  I'm soooo disappointed in myself, but I have gotten other tests pretty fast, so I guess there's hope for me.

Besides, one test won't you tell if you're a genius or not.

I found them all by not reading it, but just looking for the F's...

and it's not like a real test, just for fun, right?

I think it's a psychology awareness thing.  See if you're in the box, or out of the box.  I was in the box on this one, but I'm so far out in left field in most respects; I'm out of the stadium, so I guess I'll forgive myself for this one.  I mean, I knew I was missing something, but I ended up looking at the answer (6, not the fact I missed the 'of's'), then didn't give up until I found what I missed, but still. . .)

It was a silly 'test'.  All you have to do is be observant.  I got all 6, but also, it wasn't the first time I'd seen that 'test'.  *shrug*

Hmm..didn´t see this before..I accidentally thought you had to count the "F" before the text too. I got 8 first, since I went and counted the things in the instructions too.
